We studied the clinical effectiveness of rehabilitation of 168 patients presenting with juvenile cerebral palsy in the form of spastic diplegia who received the comprehensive rehabilitative treatment including therapeutic physical exercises, paraffin applications, general hydromassage baths, manual massage and electrical stimulation of weakened muscles with the use of the following devices: <SCENAR 97> for group 1 of the patients (n=38), <Mioneyroton-bike> for group 2 (n=43), <ACORD-Multimiostim> for group 3 (n=45), and <Amplipuls-5> for group 4 (n=38). The study yielded the significantly higher scores in the <disequilibrium> test for groups 1,2, and 3 compared with group 4 (p<0.05). In all the groups, with the exception of group 4, a significant (p<0.05) increase in the range of ankle joint motions was observed in conjunction with the lowering of the spastic calf muscle tone. After a course of rehabilitation, the overall clinical effectiveness did not differ significantly between the groups, viz. it was documented in 36 (94.7%) patients of group 1, in 39 (92.8%) patients of group 2, in 43 (95.6%) patients of group 3, and in 38 (88.3%) patients of group 4. However, the estimates of <improvements were as follows: 21 (55.3%) patients in group 1, 33 (78.5%) patients in group 2, 37 (82.2%) in group 3, and 13 (30.2%) patients in group 4. These findings give evidence of high clinical effectiveness of functional electrical stimulation with the use of <Mioneyroton-bikes and ,<ACORD-Multimiostim> devices for the combined rehabilitation of the patients suffering from juvenile cerebral palsy in the form of spastic diplegia.

Effect of artrofoon and SCENAR therapy on parameters of LPO and antioxidant system of the blood in patients with peritonitis in postoperative period.
Bull Exp Biol Med. 2009 Sep;148(3):497-500
Authors: Varakanov TA, Luspikayan SKh, Milyutina NP, Rozhkov AV
Administration of artrofoon in combination with SCENAR therapy to patients with localized suppurative peritonitis in the postoperative period considerably reduced plasma MDA level, stabilized ceruloplasmin activity, and increased catalase activity in erythrocytes compared to the corresponding parameters in patients receiving standard treatment in combination with SCENAR therapy.

The use of electronic biofeedback for the management of post-herpetic neuralgia--a report of 3 cases.
Hawaii Med J. 2007 Sep;66(9):232, 234
Authors: Ing MR
The purpose of these case reports is to describe treatment of three consecutive patients with post-herpetic neuralgia using a bioelectronical device (SCENAR). The instrument is approved as a Class II device in the United States. The electrode of the device was stroked gently over the involved skin area for up to 15 minutes per session. No more than 5 sessions over a 3-week period was required. All patients experienced substantial relief of pain from the first treatment. One patient required only 1 treatment lasting 10 minutes. The other 2 patients required 4 to 5 treatments over a 3-week period. One patient required a treatment for skin itch after one year with a follow up period of 6 months to 24 months. An electronic biofeedback device (SCENAR) may be successfully utilized in the management of post-herpetic neuralgia.

[The effectiveness of SCENAR therapy in complex treatment of duodenal ulcer, and the mechanisms of its action].
Klin Med (Mosk). 2006;84(7):35-41
Authors: Tsimmerman IaS, Kochurova IA, Vladimirskiĭ EV
A new technique of low-frequency modulated electric current therapy, SCENAR therapy, was used in treatment of 103 patients with duodenal ulcer (DU). The influence of SCENAR therapy on the main clinical and functional indices of a DU relapse was studied. It was shown that SCENAR therapy, which influences disturbed mechanisms of adaptive regulation and self-regulation, led to positive changes in most of the parameters under study. Addition of SCENAR therapy to the complex conventional pharmacotherapy fastened ulcer healing, increased the effectiveness of Helicobacter pylori eradication, and improved the condition of the gastroduodenal mucosa.

[The treatment of neurogenic bladder dysfunction with enuresis in children using the SKENAR apparatus. (self-controlled energy-neuroadaptive regulator)].
Vopr Kurortol Fizioter Lech Fiz Kult. 1995 Jul-Aug;(4):25-6
Authors: Lebedev VA
The author recommends a self-control energoneuroadaptive regulator (SCENAR) as effective in the treatment of neurogenic dysfunction of the bladder in children with nocturnal enuresis. This regulator operates according to the principles of Chinese medicine and may be used in sanatoria and at home by the children's parents specially trained by physiotherapist.
